Hurricane Sandy Response

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

We at North Jersey Community Bank realize Hurricane Sandy has taken a huge toll on our community, and we are committed to doing as much as we can to help you during this recovery. In response to this disaster, we have enacted an Emergency Loan Program for any clients who have been impacted by Sandy and are in need of emergency funding. We are dedicated to assisting you through this recovery as our community begins to retake control of the events over this past week, reopen businesses and repair our homes. To access the program, please contact your NJCB lender or email us at info@njcb.com. We’ve shortened our application process, streamlined our timeframe, and will do everything we can to respond within 24 hours.

As an added convenience, we have set each of our branches up with generators so that all of our offices can be operational. All of our locations will be open until 5PM today. We will be closed on Saturday, November 3rd to give our employees an opportunity to tend to their homes and allow us to continue to work on our systems in order to enhance capabilities for the future. Our couriers are available during operating hours to pickup any non-cash deposits in the event you cannot make it into a branch.

 As you may have experienced, we have had difficulties with our phone systems over the past few days. We appreciate your patience while we work diligently to repair the issue. If you cannot get through to us by phone, please email us at info@njcb.com and we will connect you to a banking representative with the ability to communicate with you in real time.

Additionally, any overdraft fees, returned item fees, and late payment fees incurred between Monday, October 29th and next Monday, November 5th will be waived.

We have charging stations set up in our Englewood Cliffs, Hackensack, Ridgewood, Holmdel and West New York offices. Feel free to come in to any of these locations and get your devices powered up.

 Finally, each of our branches has a conference room that is available for you and your businesses. Give us a call and we will be happy to set you up in one of our locations.

 Natural disasters often result in long lasting effects on our homes, businesses and communities. Our team  worked tirelessly to prepare for Sandy so that we could provide you with the tools and resources needed to rebuild your way through the recovery, as we stand by your side.
